This Saturday is the Halloween party that I look forward to all year long.  I love Halloween, the costumes, the decorations, the tricks and treats! However,  my friend Missy loves it more.  In fact this holiday is somewhat her speciality!  Each year she hosts an amazing party.  Each detail is painstakingly planned and beautifully executed.  It is truly a fabulous evening.  I thought I would show you some  of her handmade party decorations.  I hope you will find them as inspiring as I do. 

She decorates a table especially for the kids.  I can only imagine that the kids must  feel like they have stepped into paradise.


A wonderfully decorated cone brimming with goodies dangled from each chair


A darling paper mache  cat favor box sat at each place


The adults sat down to dinner at this spooky but beautiful table wrapped in gauze


Our favors were held in this unbelievable mummy topped box


We dined underneath her chandelier that she had filled with black twigs, ghosts and then wrapped in gauze


She sends an invitation that sets the tone of the party and gets everyone excited. This paper clay tombstone was found standing at our door inviting us to the party.


 I love to sit at dinner in this stunning environment with good friends and enjoy their company and the fun of the season. Each year I look forward to the unique favors and decorations she has made.   Missy is so talented and creative and so generously bestows her gifts on her friends.  So if you can’t tell, I can’t wait for Saturday night!

I would like to know how she made her tombstone invite or where she bought it. Tell her she rocks as the queen of Halloween Parties!

    Why don’t you demonstrate to them with a great Christmas gift basket because this year, buying is now increasingly more hard for folks. Since technologies advances, we tend to change far from conventional gift ideas. This is why should you really want to draw out Christmas perk this coming year, why not think conventional and in addition you will want to think about conserving a few bucks while your at it.
